Hi everyone, I have an issue with one of my chicks. The others all looked normal but this one has white skin, black eyes, and its feathers are very white. I know that albino animals normally have red or pink eyes. If this is an albino chick will it have any health issues? It is a silkie if that would help.

Silkies should have black skin. Do you have a picture?

Besides that, white feathered white/yellow skinned birds are very common. I'm not sure there ARE albino chickens......
